Up and Running with Cloud Foundry and Its Service Broker API

By: | April 1, 2018

As an application developer your concerns generally involve provisioning and maintaining services that provide you with a persistent data store, a message bus, a search or discovery tool, and a plethora of other services that easily integrate with your application. With the evolution of cloud services, it has become easier than ever before to provision and attach these services to your applications. Particularly in the context of cloud platforms (PaaS), existing solutions like Cloud Foundry and Kubernetes offer implementations of the Open Service Broker API as an elegant way to provide, provision, and attach services to applications running on top of these platforms with minimal efforts.

Are you thinking of migrating your applications to a Cloud Foundry or Kubernetes platform? Are you already using these platforms?Are you interested in connecting your applications to a SQL database you don’t have to deploy yourself? Do you need a message bus but you don’t know how to set it up? Come join us for an interesting session where we will bring up and register a service broker with Cloud Foundry and attach it to CF container runtime. We will demonstrate how your applications can seamlessly connect and switch services when using a service broker.
